Understanding Spiritual Abuse in the Christian Community (UK).
Could you spare 10 minutes of your time to help develop the understanding of spiritual abuse within the Christian community in the UK?
Spiritual abuse happens. However, little is known about the full extent of this type of abuse within the church and wider christian community, and less still is known about people’s understanding and perception of it, or how an appropriate and coordinated response could be made to tackle it and effectively support the survivors of such abuse.
You could help change this by participating in a short survey to gather crucial data.
A pioneering piece of research is currently being conducted by CCPAS and the National Centre for Post-qualifying Social Work & Professional Practice (NCPQSW) at Bournemouth University to explore current knowledge of, and effective responses to spiritual abuse in order to develop essential policy, practice guidance and training in this area.
The more participants we get, the greater our understanding of this important issue will be, and the more effective we can make our response. So please consider participating in this survey and forward the survey link to anyone you think may be able to contribute.
The survey is now open and will remain open until 31st March 2017. The criteria for participation in the research and details of how your data will be managed can be found on the landing page accessed by the following link:
Thank you for taking the time to help.
